Musicology Distinguished Lecture Series

Each year the Musicology Area of UT’s School of Music invites outstanding scholars and performers from around the country and abroad to participate in the Distinguished Lecture Series. Many of these lectures are cosponsored with other areas within the School of Music or other departments of the university. Participants are chosen to reflect the interests of our faculty and students, to foster interdisciplinary relationships within the university, and to enhance our campus offerings with diverse and innovative approaches to musical practice, philosophy and scholarship. Our guests present lectures and interactive workshops that demonstrate the best of their current music research. Past participants of the DLS include Dale Cockrell, Paul Berliner, Zim Ngqawana, Susan McClary, and Paul Th√©berge.
